Poor Paul , John's martyrdom, leaves him to age in front of the world, and no matter what he does, he is though of as the "dumb" one ( unfairly ) , and safely dead John , the "smart" one ; and no matter what he tries, he will be known for the music he wrote before he was "28IF" .
After the attempt on his life, George rueful commented "How come this doesn't happen to the Rolling Stones ?" Why John and not Liz, or Johnny, or Ringo ( no ill will to any of them, especially Ringo )? I truly miss John .As the song goes "death don't have no mercy ".
In the anime world ,director Satoshi Kon just died(8-24), he was one of the few directors to be mentioned in the same breath as Miyazaki, or Oshii,
On of his best know works "Millennium Actress", was inspired by the "Garbo of Japan", actress Setsuko Hara . She has not made a movie since 1963, ( the year Kon was born!)and she was born in 1920 , and is still alive . Kon is dead, and he died at 47 . Death don't have no mercy indeed ...
